The Practice of Love

The book in which I contributed an essay under my pseudonym, Arthur Dimmesdale is now out and available for purchase. The book is entitled, “The Practice of Love: Real Stories of Living Into the Kingdom of God.” My chapter is entitled “Fear and Loathing in the Pulpit.” I’m very excited about this opportunity and even more excited about the compilation… Read more »

My Mess, God’s Message: Prelude To A Fall

So, here’s my story in earnest. I grew up in beautiful Russellville, Arkansas in a Christian home. I had a goofy sister (she’s still goofy) and a good network of friends. My dad was a health physicist, which means he was Homer Simpson and worked at the local nuclear power plant. My mom was a stay-at-home mom but also penned… Read more »

Adultery: A Lucrative Business?

Before I continue my story, I have to address an issue I’ve been contemplating for over a year. I’m in the process of writing a book on fallen pastors and have already written an essay on my experience. The essay won’t bring me any income. The book has the possibility of bringing me some, if any. I started my blog… Read more »

Fallen Pastor Interviews

I’m currently doing research for a book that I’m working on for Civitas Press on fallen pastors. I’m working on interviewing fallen pastors from across the country about their experience before and after their fall. Bottom line – if you are a fallen pastor or know one who would be interested in an interview for the book, please contact me…. Read more »

My Mess, His Message: Introduction

I promised I’d write out my testimony. It’ll take more than one post. I fell from the pastorate in October of 2009 after pastoring a church for eight years. The following March, I started blogging under a pseudonym at blogger.com. I had to write. Writing helped me clear a lot of the depression, the ideas, and the feelings that were… Read more »

My Testimony, Audio

I promised you that I’d share my testimony with you. Last Sunday, I shared it with a local church. I just finished posting it to YouTube – sorry, no video, audio only. So, if you can’t wait for the typed version, or would rather listen, here it is. It’s a little over 30 minutes long in total.

Goodbye Arthur, Hello World

Well, here I am. No more hiding behind a pseudonym. I’ve been writing behind the name of Arthur Dimmesdale for over a year and it’s time for me to let you know who I am. Not that it’s going to change your life or anything. But I’m in the process of writing a book and I need to be open… Read more »

The Proverbial Cat And The Bag

Well, the proverbial cat is out of the bag. It was coming, I suppose. But I’m glad it came on my terms. A few days ago, before I archived my blog, I told my ex-wife Angelica about my blog. She took it real well. I had to tell her because of the book I’m developing with my publisher. It was… Read more »
